. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise in support of yucca mountain which by law is designated as the site for permanent geological repository for our nation's spent nuclear fuel. last year the president's blue ribbon commission on america's nuclear future issued a report but barred from even evaluating the merits of yucca mountain, despite the fact that it has been approved in a bipartisan basis by congress and signed into law by the president -- actually reaffirmed by signing of the law in 2002, the initial law was passed in 1982, and the law was amended in 1987 which in a bipartisan manner passed thue both chambers, signed by -- through both chambers, signed by different presidents, established that yucca mountain would be the repository for our nuclear spent fuel. what the blue ribbon commission did say was any host community should expect incentives. that commitment is no different from nevada when it comes to yucca mountain, and good news. the local county is consenting and ready to negotiate with the department of energy. in advance of yucca mountain even receiving its first deliver

the affordable care act but keeps the law's budget savings and uses it to balance their budget. they say in the budget they are going to repeal the affordable care act. how are they going to repeal it? it's passed the congress and it's the law of this country. it was upheld by the supreme court. we had an election, where this was a central point of debate. and guess what, president obama won the election and he ran on the affordable care act. so they say they are going to repeal it, they don't have the votes to repeal it. and even if they did, he would veto it. no way they could repeal it. it's a hoax. it's a hoax. and then they claim to protect medicare while ending medicare as we know it for future seniors and our children and our grandchildren. and the biggest hoax, i want you to comment on this, and sit there and say they are going to repeal the affordable care act and take the savings from the affordable care act, the $718 billion that was put there from the providers and use that to balance their budget. the numbers do not add up. ms. frankel: let me ask you this. does the repeal o

of government employees, and the federal law enforcement officers association be put into the record. good afternoon. after september 11, zero planes have been taken down by sharp objects, or were sharp objects could have been used. there have been zero times as well. >> there was one attempted hijacking internationally. domestically, there have been zero attempts. internationally, in 2009, a hijacking attempt with a plastic knife. >> also of zero major staffing issues with sharp objects. >> 0 that i am aware of. >> that begs the question, when we look at the number of times or successes that have taken place involving sharp objects post-9/11, the answer is that there have been a zero. can that number get better? the answer is no. it also begs the question, can that get worse? for me, the answer is yes. objects being a sharp on board now accomplish the goal of maintaining the zero planes being taken over or have been zero incidents involving sharp objects? i also understand, administrator pistol, that the shift towards a --k-based risk assessment just because this is a new threat does not
as clearly is the job that's destroyed when government first pulls that dollar out. we see those laws -- lost jobs as chronic unemployment and a stagnating economy. every $1 billion spent in washington means taking $9 from an average family. oother in direct taxes -- either in direct taxes or tax-driven price increases as businesses pass along their cost to consumers. that means that $1 trillion of new taxes that the senate has proposed means $9,000 per family. now we're told, don't worry, that's all paid by businesses. but businesses don't pay business taxes. they only collect them. they pass them on to us as consumers through higher prices, to us as employees through lower wages or to us as investors through lower earnings, usually on our 401-k's. $1 trillion of deficit as we ran up last year really means $9,000 of future taxes for every family , robbing our children of their futures. it's about time we started thinking in these numbers as families size to terms because ultimately these numbers have a very real impact on families who were struggling to balance their own budgets, to set thei
the monumental changes to our economy over the past 10 years since the law was last authorized. there are many important reasons to do so, including cutting waste and improving he efishency, but the most important reason to me is the moral one. quite simply the existing maze of federal work force training programs is failing those who it is intended to be serving by trying to be all things to all people, the federal work force training program is serving no one well. that's a problem. the federal government's food print has gotten far too large and our national debt has grown with it. as a result of this failing to serve the work force of today and piling up ever larger bills for the children of tomorrow. people that don't even exist yet. what the skills act does is consolidate and eliminate many unnecessary and duplicative programs not simply for the sake of downsizing but improve the quality of work force training. that's what we should all be about. republican and democrat alike. business owners understand this. they understand the importance of streamlining and efishency. they understand t
the point. the senator knows having attended law school and professes to have some experience in the constitution, none of these rights are absolute. none of them. and the heller decision goes specifically to the question of this amendment and tells us when they were asked in the heller decision, a panel -- heller 2, a panel of republican appointed judges rejected a second amendment challenge to d.c.'s assault weapon ban and magazine limits, the second amendment challenge. the d.c. circuit court held that such laws, quote, do not disarm 1:15. up until then from this morning's "washington journal," senator sanders from vermont. host: senator bernie sanders, senator from vermont, here. thank you for being here. you served on the budget committee. we saw senator patty murray, the chairman, introduce her budget plan. here's the headline in "the washington times" -- there are no sacred cows that calls for $1 trillion in new taxes. what's your takeaway? guest: well, what it does is also call for substantial cuts, but it deals with deficit reduction in a balanced way. what the republ
laws and above all the vigilant and manly spirit which actuates the people of america, a spirit which nourishes freedom and in return is nourished by it, end quote. so in the spirit of james madison, i will be filing legislation to make the sequester apply to the pay of members of congress at the first moment that is constitutionally permissible. members, this body must live under the same rules as everybody else. our founding fathers expected it, the american people demand it. thank you, mr. speaker. i yield back the balance of my ime. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from new mexico, mr. lujan, for five minutes. mr. lujan: i ask unanimous consent to revise and extend my remarks. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. r. lujan: mr. speaker, the house republican budget unveiled yesterday by chairman paul ryan is the repeat of the same tea party principles that have already been rejected by the american people. house republicans are once again determined to place the burden of deficit reduction on the backs of middle-class families while the wealthiest a
this house was led by democrats, and you can see the laws that they have passed and the amazing amount of spending that it would place upon our country. we don't even show in here individually where social security is that will go bankrupt. medicare, bankrupt. medicaid, insolvent. our inability to be able to pay or our future by creating jobs today. the free enterprise system is exactly what republicans support and believe in because that is the american dream. not government spending and government jobs. but rather a vibrant free enterprise system whereby there are employers who want to hire people to become employees to have careers, to then make this country better and stronger. the way you do that is by lowering government spending. by having a public-private partnership not by having the federal government be responsible for everything from a one-size-fits all health care industry to government control of every part of our lives. yesterday paul ryan very effectively, i believe, came before the house rules committee nd talked about a vision forward. what's very interesting is every
about the criminal networks we're facing. it is our law enforcement combined with the military facing these criminal networks. are these nations who are working with the criminal networks on the other side who are partners with them in a number of these efforts, and what can be done in regards to that? whoever wants to take the first crack at that. >> with the exception of a couple of possibilities, i'm positive there are no government -- there are no governments that are supportive, but there are high officials within governments that are supportive. many of them for their own personal corruption purposes, but i think a few of them to make life a little more difficult for the united states. i don't want to get into the detail in an open hearing. think john is absolutely correct. this points to another real concern about these networks. on ourt just the impact population and youth using narcotics, the profits are used to corrupt officials and that undermines these fragile democracies. nameld be hard pressed to a state that was an identified narcos state. there are officials throughout
of the matter is that the law states that the president of the united states is required to present a budget to congress by the first monday in february. that was the first monday in february, we are six weeks beyond that, the president has flagrantly, flagrantly ignored his statutory responsibility to bring to the united states congress a budget. now some folks on the other side say, it happens all the time. don't worry about that. it happens all the time. well, as a matter of fact, mr. chairman, just one term, president obama has missed the budget deadline more than any other president. he's now missed it four out of five times. in the 90 years between 1923 and 2013, president obama is the only president to miss the deadline two years in a row. he's the only president who missed the deadline three out of four years in his first term and he holds the record for the longest delay, 98 days, maybe he's -- maybe that's the record, he's trying to beat. so i want to commend again my colleagues in the congressional black caucus for bringing forward a budget. i think it's extremely important that w
, homeland security, schools, medical research, law enforcement and pell grants. it is time to stop the mindless cuts to critical services and investments and support job growth and middle-class families. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from utah rise? >> request unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and revise and extend. the speaker pro tempore: without objection. >> mr. speaker, today, i rise in defense of the common people of america. people who don't have annual vacations, people who don't fly to vacations on private jets. many of these families save for months and even years to visit washington, d.c., and one of the things they expect to do is be able to visit the white house, which is the people's house. and now this president has closed it in order to make a political point. and now that that decision has proven unpopular, he has done something, blamed someone else. he said on it was the secret service who made the decision. it only costs $7.3 million to keep it open, much less than this president will send on any single vacation
reporting side we had 29% of our vic dems who said i want to cooperate with law enforcement walk away and refuse to cooperate. that was 96 vic dems in the air force 96 vic dems. that encouraged and emboldened them to get through that process and to feel less free victimized by that process and they've got care to explain why things are happening the way they are. so, i believe there's multiple reasons our surveys have shown why people do not report. we know that one of them is the belief this is a difficult process to get through. that's not the only reason. i think i would turn it over to major general patton to let you know what the survey revealed and told us among the various reasons people don't report. >> lieutenant general chipman. >> senator, to follow on what general harding said, these are the most difficult kinds of allegations to share with anyone. these are the intimate details of personal lives, bodily integrity. this masher over that thayer, a great desire for privacy on the part of the terms to avoid general knowledge among unit members, the community of the kinds of t
